A very valuable addition to the literature on Japan’s modern history and politics. Based on extensive research into both Japanese and American materials, it provides the reader with a thorough knowledge of Yoshida’s personality and political career which, considering Yoshida’s strong personal impact on the formation of postwar politics, is an important prerequisite to an understanding of Japan’s modern development.Public Affairs
